NAIDOC Week 2020 is just around the corner, running from 8 to 15 November and the Bodalla Local Aboriginal Land Council, Katungul Aboriginal Corporation Regional Health and Community Services, the Snowy Valleys Council and Yass Public School have been provided $2,890, $4,000, $3,000 and $500 respectively to help celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander excellence and Australia’s rich history and culture.

The grants for Eden-Monaro are part of the Morrison Government’s $1.4 million program to support local organisations to celebrate the week.

Senator for New South Wales Jim Molan invites everyone to get involved, learn more about local Indigenous cultures, and share in the traditions that make Australia unique.

“NAIDOC Week is always a special event on the community calendar” Senator Molan said.

The Katungul Aboriginal Corporation Regional Health and Community Services will be hosting the Annual Family Fishing Activity. A community activity that is inclusive for families and individuals to participate in.

This year’s theme, Always Was, Always Will Be, highlights Australia’s ancient history and celebrates the traditions and cultures that endure today.

Senator Molan said “We are privileged to have one of the world’s oldest continuous cultures and through NAIDOC events we can share in this proud history and contemplate our future.”
